Neocon liars are the culprits
The entire part of the planet that accessed the mainstream-news media knows how Bush/Cheney and their neocons made many false statements deliberately presented as being true to lead the US and their bribed coalition into war. We need not recount all those lies here. However, we know they began on a huge scale with their lies and cover-up of their 9-11 culpability. They are the culprits.
Al Qaeda is theirs
We know that al Qaeda is theirs, because they, their military, the US military, openly scurried al Qaeda out of Afghanistan while the mainstream media, as part of the instrumentality of the world order, knowingly and deliberately misrepresented and hid that fact from the mass of citizens of the US and the world. The fact that the US shuttled al Qaeda out of Afghanistan is what they call a smoking gun. It is proof of guilt all the way up the chain of command to include George W. Bush. He is guilty under any circumstances.
The yellowcake forgery, the WMD, the al Qaeda links, the mobile labs, the drones, and on and on, were all concocted by the Office of Special Plans under Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Feith, et al.
Of course, we know that Colin Powell called his own presentation to the UN, "Bullsh_t."
Mainstream media liars
We have all been privy to the lame excuses and alibis that continue to this day. There is no repentance in sight. We have all witnessed the mainstream media owners and advertisers, as part of the US military-industrial complex, orchestrate the news so as to lull the people to sleep, to distract, to downplay, to spin, etc. They knew, and know, that al Qaeda is the instrument of the US shadow government within the shadow government; however, because the US mainstream media butters its bread by the spoils of war, the loot, the booty, the prizes, they cover up the fact(s).
The mainstream media fail miserably. They fail God. They fail the people. They are not a free press. They are not courageous. They (as all of the oligarchy, Empire, military) are greedy, selfish, mean, cruel, vindictive, demonic, spiritually lost and blind souls. We differentiate what constitutes being "of" that evil system. There are those within it who will turn upon truly hearing the truth, which is only and always from God.
The reporters and investigators who went into journalism with a desire to uncover the truth know that they who are in the mainstream are prevented by the higher-ups (those who are actually deeper in the bowels of hell) from doing honest work. Yet, for fear for their own livelihoods, those reporters and investigators who remain in that system allow themselves to be enslaved by that system. They don't band together to start alternative sources. They allow and facilitate the consolidation of source outlets to continue to further enslave them. Theirs, of course, is the lesser sin compared to the slave owners.
Iran not as portrayed by neocons
Knowing all this, we now face that system using exactly the same rotten, no good, villainous, roguish methods concerning Iran. We don't say that Iran's way is right, but Iran is not as it is being portrayed by the neocons-no nation is.
Iran doesn't want nuclear weapons so that it may use them in a first strike on Israel. Oh there are some in Iran who would press that button, but they would never be allowed to get near it.
The US has such weapons. It developed them with the view that the button would only be in trustworthy hands. It put in ostensible safeguards to prevent the wrong hands from being able to press the button. However, those safe guards are only as good as is the entire system and the system is systemically corrupt. That's why the insane within the US have further developed so-called usable nuclear weapons. They are just tactical nuclear weapons just as we had them shortly after WWII.
The antichrist "Federalist" gang
The corrupt system was built-up by the Federalists, who viewed government as the means to protect their gang stealing the inheritance of others (the commons). If you read their works, they say it outright. Self first and always was their philosophy, and it is the current reigning philosophy. It is antichrist. It is why Christianity says that Satan rules the worldly world. It is why Jesus refused to bow down to worship the prince of that worldview.
Now that corrupt system is working it and working it to do exactly the same thing against Iran that it has done against Iraq. It does so for the prize of oil. It does so for all the reasons of worldly Empire, selfish and antichrist.
Those who standby this to the end will go with it back into the bowels of hell. Those who stand up against it in the end with all the consistency of Jesus (no greed, no violence, no depravity, giving and sharing all only, crediting God completely, not backsliding, being patient) will be in heaven.
The New York Times
We see The New York Times, which was once supposedly the premier US newspaper, publishing on its front page on Saturday February 10, 2007, that there is "broad agreement among American intelligence agencies" that Iran is supplying Shiites in Iraq with what the US military has termed "explosively formed projectiles" (EFP's).1 & 2 Here we go again, or there they go again.
There is absolutely no proof that Iran is doing this, and naturally, The New York Times is suspected of just passing on neocon propaganda and military psy-ops aimed directly at the American people and the world just as it did concerning Iraq. Who owns The New York Times? Are they honest or are they willing to be used for Empire's sake? They have a decidedly mixed history that points to both vacillation and ultimate control by the oligarchs.
Downing Street Memo all over again
What we've been shown are some photographs of the alleged weapon's parts. What we have been told is that intelligence is guessing that they are from Iran. Really though, the policy is once again driving intelligence just as the Downing Street Memo(s) showed concerning Iraq. The guess is aimed at Iran for effect, for the psychological effect on the voters and really just as talking points, which points are nothing more than lame excuses to steal oil: The prize, the loot, the spoils of war, for the sake of the superrich.
Now, the Times article is very carefully worded in anticipation of the Times being viewed in exactly the same light that shone upon it once Judith Miller's close cooperation with Scooter Libby was revealed (that she was buying his disinformation without fact checking; that she was running the propaganda-ball for the White House war machine).
The article says the following:
The officials said they were willing to discuss the issue to respond to what they described as an increasingly worrisome threat to American forces in Iraq, and were not trying to lay the basis for an American attack on Iran.
Administration officials said they recognized that intelligence failures related to prewar American claims about Iraq's weapons arsenal could make critics skeptical about the American claims.
The Bush administration is expected to make public this weekend some of what intelligence agencies regard as an increasing body of evidence pointing to an Iranian link, including information gleaned from Iranians and Iraqis captured in recent American raids on an Iranian office in Erbil and another site in Baghdad.
The information includes interrogation reports from the raids indicating that money and weapons components are being brought into Iraq from across the Iranian border in vehicles that travel at night. One of the detainees has identified an Iranian operative as having supplied two of the bombs. The border crossing at Mehran is identified as a major crossing point for the smuggling of money and weapons for Shiite militants, according to the intelligence.
However, that's propaganda. That's psy-ops. They most certainly are "trying to lay the basis for an American attack on Iran" whether done by the US or its proxy, Israel, which has said it will do it alone if the US won't do it.
These are word games played by the masters of word games.
No "intelligence failures"
There were no "intelligence failures." The CIA and military intelligence was saying there was no evidence of yellowcake, or WMD, or al Qaeda links, or any of the rest that the neocon (noble liars) made up. There was policy manufacturing false intelligence. Douglas Feith was in charge of the illegal lie-factory. He was the department head put into place by Rumsfeld/Cheney with the express job of fabricating the pretexts of war.
More information from torture
The article says, "information includes interrogation reports." Exactly what torture methods have they used on these informants? We know that information gleaned by torture is not to be trusted, ever. We know that interrogators torture people until those interrogators hear what they want to hear. They started the torture wanting to hear that Iran is supplying weapons, which could be coming from anywhere, including from the US military as a false-flag operation.
More revving up the gang via the pseudo-gang
The article just goes on and on spewing out all the little lies that go into making the Big Lie. Bob Gates, the defense secretary, says there are serial numbers from Iran. From what company are these numbers? Who has the database of these serial numbers? What is it about these serial numbers that indicates Iran? What about the pseudo gangs caught in Iraq? The British were caught red-handed remember. It's in our book.
Where are the journalists
Where are the journalists asking the probing questions? Michael R. Gordon, who wrote the article, certainly either didn't or the paper wouldn't allow any of that in the article.
Gordon knows the ropes. He knows where the lines are drawn across which he may not probe or he's out-kicked out for doing what journalists are supposed to do. Well, join all the kicked out journalists together and start your own real newspaper(s).
Oh, but you won't have access to the propaganda machine. The military-industrial complex and the whole corporate system that support it won't advertise with you. Those who will advertise with aren't rich. You won't be making nearly as much money. Do want all of that, or do you want heaven coming to earth with your soul as a part of the new heaven-earth? Keep doing what you're doing and you'll end up in the other house.
The article quotes intelligence as knowing that weapons transfers were "approved by Supreme Leader Khamenei" of Iran. Know how do they "know" that?
Of course Iranian elements are involved in Iraq on all sorts of levels, some for good, some for bad. The US propaganda machine though isn't designed to inform and enlighten. It's design to manipulate perceptions with half-truths, always!
The real truth is that this whole way is soul killing. All militarism, all selfish secrecy and barriers, is evil.
The article further states:
Marine officials say that weapons have not been found in the Sunni-dominated Anbar Province, adding to the view that the device is an Iranian-supplied and Shiite-employed weapon.
"We are working day and night to disassemble these networks that do everything from bring the explosives to the point of construction, to how they're put together, to who delivers them, to the mechanisms that are used to have them go off," Gen. Peter Pace, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said last week. "It is instructive that at least twice in the last month, that in going after the networks, we have picked up Iranians."
Now read that carefully, which the propagandists don't want you to do. They want it just flowing in uncritically. The weapons aren't found in Sunni areas. Hold that thought, because we'll be covering observations made by Juan Cole about this in a moment.
Look at the words of Peter Pace, "It is instructive that at least twice in the last month, that in going after the networks, we have picked up Iranians." Think about the fact that they picked up Iranians. The way it's worded is very subtle if you are under the spell. It is worded in a way to get you to imagine that in tracking down leads, the leads led to Iranians. However, that's not what it says. It is relying upon your programmed thought processes to automatically assume it. It's a word game played by the word warriors at the Pentagon. Words are their weapons more than any other weapon they have. What it really says is that they picked up Iranians. Well, they didn't have to hunt for Iranians since Iranians are in the country openly.
What happened was that the neocon schemers decided that they had to create the perception of a positively identified, proven link, just as the neocons did concerning Iraq. That was the start of it. Then they grabbed and threatened and tortured and bribed, etc., various Iranians. They also did this concerning Iraqi to complete the false (half-truth) picture for effect.
Bankers, financiers (Jewish or not)
Look, how can anyone trust this stuff? It's coming from the US-intelligence system, which operates al Qaeda just so you will be a slave to the oligarchs. The pinnacle bankers, the financiers (Jewish or not), who are hell-bent for a dictatorship of the bankers and their owned so-called intellectuals are paying for this stuff to be fed to you to keep you under their spell. Shake it off. Don't fall for it. It's Satan lying to you, tempting you, getting you to fear, fracturing you, breaking you, just as the interrogators break souls.
They cannot continue without people under their spell. The more people who wake up from the nightmare of the oligarchs, the sooner heaven will come to earth and conflate with it in toto.
Now, about Juan Cole's observations,3 professor Cole has pointed out the following:
This NYT article depends on unnamed USG sources who alleged that 25 percent of US military deaths and woundings in Iraq in October-December of 2006 were from explosively formed penetrator bombs fashioned in Iran and given to Shiite militias:' In the last three months of 2006, attacks using the weapons accounted for a significant portion of Americans killed and wounded in Iraq, though less than a quarter of the total, military officials say.'
This claim is one hundred percent wrong. Because 25 percent of US troops were not killed fighting Shiites in those three months. Day after day, the casualty reports specify al-Anbar Province or Diyala or Salahuddin or Babil, or Baghdad districts such as al-Dura, Ghaziliyah, Amiriyah, etc.—and the enemy fighting is clearly Sunni Arab guerrillas. And, Iran is not giving high tech weapons to Baathists and Salafi Shiite-killers.
You see, the neocon-wing of the intelligence/military propagandists cannot fool all of the people all of the time.
Now, look more closely at Peter Pace, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
We know that the explosively formed projectiles are manufactured in Iran. What I would not say is that the Iranian government, per se [specifically], knows about this," he said. "It is clear that Iranians are involved, and it's clear that materials from Iran are involved, but I would not say by what I know that the Iranian government clearly knows or is complicit.4
However, the other hand of intelligence has already spun things contrary to this. Pace was one step ahead and one step behind the spin artists. He was one step behind the talking-point spin that supreme leader Khamenei approved the weapon transfers. He was one step ahead by saying, "We know that the explosively formed projectiles are manufactured in Iran." He's messing up royally in the eyes of the White House. How long will he last?
Neocons losing their grip
Also, the so-called intelligence doesn't jibe. Some say they "know," while other say "they may be." The neocons are losing their grip.
Pace knows what he's doing. He isn't being completely loyal to the neocons. It's politics.
Whether they replace him or not, they'll shrug it off, since they imagine that the mainstream will never follow up on it and the people want their gasoline, which they all are beginning to realize is what the war is about: Capturing that prize.
In fact, Bush would make greater headway with the evil spirit streaming through the hearts of Americans by simply saying he did all this for selfish reasons (national interest). He stole for America. That wouldn't be the truth either though, because he stole for his gang and for himself first and foremost, always.
Back to Pace, he's been a glorified security guard for the gang. Maybe he's been reading Smedley Butler.
IED's developed by British
Now for some real digging, consider that the so-called IED's from Iran were first developed by the British in their false-flag operations against the Irish Catholics in Northern Ireland, the Irish Republican Army (IRA).
...it was discovered (in October 2005) that the new, deadly IED's were using a British design that had been stupidly given to the IRA by British intelligence and then passed around various terror groups the IRA were allied with.
.... As the Independent on Sunday reported:
Eight British soldiers killed during ambushes in Iraq were the victims of a highly sophisticated bomb first used by the IRA, The Independent on Sunday can reveal.
The soldiers, who were targeted by insurgents as they travelled through the country, died after being attacked with bombs triggered by infra-red beams. The bombs were developed by the IRA using technology passed on by the security services in a botched "sting" operation more than a decade ago.
This contradicts the British government's claims that Iran's Revolutionary Guard is helping Shia insurgents to make the devices.
The Independent on Sunday can also reveal that the bombs and the firing devices used to kill the soldiers, as well as two private security guards, were initially created by the UK security services as part of a counter-terrorism strategy at the height of the troubles in the early 1990s.5
Here again, one must look carefully to absorb, reject, and interpret. Look at the words, "created by the UK security services as part of a counter-terrorism strategy." The IRA didn't invent this monstrous weapon. British weapons research and development came up with the particular design. Apparently, the French resistance used something similar during WWII. Why did the British come up with this? Was the sting botched or planned? The British certainly didn't want to give up their last little vestiges of Empire in Northern Ireland, where the Scotts and Protestants had moved in as the elites some four hundred years earlier. Well, we won't go into all that here.
Just to be clear, research into EFP's was reportedly begun by the Germans in WWII as an anti-tank mine.
Empires create terror
The point is that those weapons were designed to fall into hands that would use them to give the Empire the excuse to clamp down, to send terror through the people, to herd them into going along with the wishes of the oligarchs at the time. It has ever been so.
Fear of manufactured enemies is the weapon of Empire turned upon its own. That's what al Qaeda is.

The following should appear at the end of every post:
According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":
Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.
Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.
Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.
Political Campaign Intervention
Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.
Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.
Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:
- Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
- Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
- Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
- Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
- Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office
Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:
- The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
- Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
- We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
- When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
- It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
- We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
- We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
- When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
- We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
- It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.
And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)
